    Eight relief coroners will allow quicker outcomes for grieving families


    The government has pledged 7.5 million dollars over four years to help clear a backlog of coronial cases.

    Chief Coroner Judge Deborah Marshall says it's welcome news.

    She says coroners and staff are working long and demanding hours.

    The backlog of caseloads has increased from just over three thousand in 2014/15 to more than four thousand in 2017/18.

    The average time to close a coronial case has also increased from 311 days to 345 days.
